Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure at Newhalem Crags March 1st to mid-July Details
Peregrine falcons select nest sites on cliffs in the Upper Skagit Valley, including the Climbing Management Areas of Newhalem West (Ryan’s Wall) and Newhalem East. As required in the NPS Superintendent’s Compendium, these areas will be closed to all public from March 1st to July 15th of each year, or until the young falcons have fledged or NPS staff have determined that nesting will not occur on a specific wall during this period. Access Fund, Washington Climbers Coalition and NPS partner on a volunteer raptor monitoring program to determine nesting activity. Contact the NPS and/or WCC for updates.
Lexington Tower lies directly in the middle of the Liberty Bell Group. Routes exist on all aspects, but the north face and the east face are the most commonly climbed. Summit is at 7560 feet.
